Special Monggo Hopia- Hopia (hó-piá) is the best and  popular Filipino bean filled pastry. Great for snacks!

  • 1/2 cup Water
  • pinch of Salt
  • Dough 2 Roll in fat

  • Filling
  • 1 1/2 cup Mongo bean, boiled and mashed
  • 1 can condensed milk

  • Meanwhile, make doughs. by mixing all the ingredients for dough 1 and separately dough 2.
  • You could preheat the oven at 400 ° F.
    Mix all the dough ingredients together. In a separate container, mix the roll-in fat ingredients together.
    Roll out the dough in 1/2 inch thick and put the roll in fat in the center. Gather the edges to seal in the roll-in fat. Rest for a few minutes.
    Roll out the dough to flatten and fold in thirds, then set aside for a few minutes. Repeat this step twice, resting the dough after every handling.
    Flatten the dough and roll like a jelly roll. Cut to divide into 24 – 30 pieces, or depending to the size of hopia you want.
    Roll out with the cut side up, spoon the filling in. Collect all the sides to form a ball and flatten with the smooth side up.
    Lay the pieces on a baking pan and brush with eggwash.
    Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

  2. This recipe is very good for coffee or tea. The only revision I did was reducing the flour to 1-1/4 cup and 1/4 cup sugar for the second dough for easy rolling of the dough and less sugar since the filling is already sweet. Thank you very much for sharing this great and wonderful recipe.
